March 27th – April 2nd

The Valley Nerd Watch!


So despite the fact that we repeatedly forget to mention it because we’re not on Facebook all THAT often we’re huge fans of Brass Cat Game Night! The Brass Cat is a nice as heck bar, particularly when it’s got that patio area open in the summer, and more importantly Justin Dowd puts on a very friendly game night.

Justin knows the rules, he’s an extra player if you need one, and he’s really good at figuring out a good selection of games so people all get a chance to have a good time. Plus all the folks who attend are quite friendly. It’s really delightful! Have you been? Fill out this survey! Have you never been? Still fill out the survey, to provide useful data about how to make it the best event it can be!

Also! If you notice that a local business or event either has a website that’s no longer functional or notice that they’re not popping up on Google or only post on FB whatnot, let us know! We’re trying to get a list together of people we miss because like they’ve only got a Facebook page or the site has changed. But more eyes on the problem is always a big help!

Oh also since there’s a bunch of prison policy related stuff in this issue, why not take the opportunity to donate to the Prison Policy Initiative?

Go check out the Valley Creators page! As always, be sure to check out our Patreon and the Weekly Events page! There are a lot of fun things happening this and every week! And don’t forget to check out the updated Book Clubs List!

January 30th – February 5th

The Valley Nerd Watch!


We feel like it’s an important time to remind you that monthly sustaining contributions to charitable organizations go a long way toward helping them accomplish their goals. Several that do extremely useful work: the American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the National Immigration Law Center, and the International Rescue Committee.

The most pertinent thing locally we can think of to remind you about is that this is one of your last possible days to submit a talk/workshop topic to the upcoming NERDSummit conference on web development and related technological stuff. It seems like it’ll be fun and full disclosure we’re involved with doing some marketing stuff with them but for real it’s the sort of thing you probably can tell whether or not you’re excited about so mostly that’s just been us informing you about it.

Anyway! Check out NERDSummit.org to submit a topic! Then go to the actual event March 18th – 19th!

Go check out the Valley Creators page! As always, be sure to check out our Patreon and the Weekly Events page! There are a lot of fun things happening this and every week! And don’t forget to check out the updated Book Clubs List!

Adelia Saunders, Indelible
In her debut novel, Adelia Saunders paints a picture of a protagonist who can see information about all people written on their skin like ink. Some of it is banal, some of it is intense. When she meets someone with her name on their cheek, she’s intrigued. Then there’s a heck of a lot about other characters as well. Seems like a real web of a book, and we like that simple but magical premise.

Jeannine Atkins, Stone Mirrors: The Sculpture and Silence of Edmonia Lewis

There’s not much known about her, so Jeannine Atkins has stiched facts and verse together to offer a picture of what might have been the life of an extremely interesting historical figure!

The Valley Nerd Watch!


Have an extremely good holiday season this year! Bring good cheer to other folks, it’s a good time to make sure that other people are doing okay and that they have what they need. Lots of gift-giving holiday times does sometimes mean a bunch of stress, though! Take care of yourselves.

This is a great time to become a sustaining monthly donor of a great charitable organization like the Food Bank of Western Mass! You can also donate in the name of your friends or family as a way of avoiding having to figure out what the heck to get them. Well, and as a way to do good in the world. But like, with the side benefit of making shopping for gifts during the Gifting Season less stressful.

Anyway, Happy Holidays!
